2008 release. A ragbag delight of boogie, disco, funk and jazz, collaborators on Moving With the Shakers include Harlem soul legend Leroy Burgess, Diane Charlemagne (who sang on Goldie's Inner City Life) and Chaka Khan's sister Taka Boom. Fulltime front-man Pete Simpson is also known for lending his vocal talents to the Unabombers' alias, The Elektrons. Says band founder Dave Lee: "On this third album, I wanted to say something in the songs and avoid the banal lyrics that plague so much dance music." "Journey Intro" opens with live strings and luscious vocals, setting the scene for the 17 track opus. "Our Lives Are Shaped" is a nod towards the East London 2 step soul, sound-system days. Next up is a slinky rework of David Bowie's "Fashion." "Sitting on Top of the World" harks back to the uplifting disco of Earth, Wind And Fire with a message to keep your ego in check, while the stomping "Days Gone By" remembers the innocence of youth.
